“We, the Hyatt Regency Saipan family, read with great pride the professional accomplishments of Claudia C. Adriano. She is a rising star of the Hyatt Corporation and has always represented Saipan with great humility and class.

However, the irony of Claudia’s rise does not escape us. While Claudia’s accomplishments have highlighted Saipan within the Hyatt family and the rest of the hospitality world, here at home, the future of Hyatt Regency Saipan hangs in the balance.

“We hope the Hyatt Regency Saipan lease will get its final approval so that the next generation of Saipan have the opportunity to follow in Claudia’s footsteps and make it big in the Hyatt world, and they can start right here at home. them.
